Anna Magliocco-Chagnon, CEO of Bitstream said “In July of last year Bitstream announced that BOLT climbed past 100 million Web pages rendered. The first 100 million pages are always the hardest. At our current rate of usage, BOLT servers are rendering 100 million Web pages every two weeks, and that rate is accelerating.
BOLT is now drawing new users faster than 1 million every month, another rate that is also accelerating. It’s extremely gratifying that after all our hard work and our dialogue with our users, we have built a mobile application that is highly reviewed, award-winning and popular around the world.”
Recognizing that some mobile phones currently in use cannot support the full size applications and some network providers limit the size of application downloads, Bitstream also offers a light version of the BOLT mobile browser, BOLT Lite. BOLT Lite contains all the essential features of the BOLT mobile browser, retaining BOLT’s feature-rich functionality, best-of-breed download speeds and desktop PC-style page layout in a smaller package optimized for entry-level devices.
The most fully featured BOLT mobile web available for mobile phones of all types. Among BOLT 2.1’s new features are tighter integration with Facebook, support for HTML5 video and several new Flash video streaming websites. With tabbed browsing, video support and social network integration, the second generation of the acclaimed BOLT browser enables handset manufacturers and mobile operators to deliver the best Internet user experience to all categories of mobile devices.
The Bitstream claims over 7.3 million users for the browser in over 200 countries with 570 million minutes of video or related content being streamed. In 2010, BOLT has witnessed 290 terabytes of data.
